We've noticed that between 8 and 12 hours of taking his actigall, he kicks out some sludge. Other than that, he seems to be doing well. We've been stepping him down on the vetprofen, so he should be off of that soon.
In this picture, the magenta arrow is pointing to sludge, and the blue arrows are pointing to some of the stone flakes.
We think this is caused by the actigall, of which he is still taking a maintenance dose. Henry seemed to be fine, since he was acting like this:
He has been eating his hay, drinking, eating pellets, and otherwise acting pretty normal. The only thing off - and we've noticed this will all of our intact boys when they're having bladder issues - is that when he stood on all four feet, he would hold his testicles out behind him a little.
Well, tonight, I went downstairs to check on him, and he ran to the side of the cage, but his front feet on the grids, and wheeked at me. When I went over to the cage, he ran to his pigloo, in and out of it, until I picked it up to see what was going on. Inside, I found a stone, a little smaller than a peppercorn.
I am wondering if the actigall chipped out pieces of the stone until it was small enough for him to pass?
I will mention that all of this time, Henry has continued to gain weight, so this stone hasn't really bothered him very much.
Sorry the pictures are so out of focus.
